During the late fall and this winter, we have been working on our rain garden design layouts for our rain garden neighborhood project in the Brook Run subdivision in Westerville. The rain gardens will be installed in late May, early June this year. Below are the layout plans. The shapes and styles are mix-and-match, and the chosen planting list for each resident will be dependent upon the light requirements of the spot picked for the residents’ gardens.

“Bird & Butterfly/S-curve” rain garden layout

“Mixed Border/Half-Moon” rain garden layout

“Shrub Border/Raindrop” rain garden layout

Letters will be going out this week to residents in the Brook Run neighborhood outlining some next steps and reminders. The landscaper will contact and meet with the residents individually next month to go over details, then we will meet with the neighborhood as a group in April to discuss the timeline and details of the installation days.
